175115 Up Hatherley 13 May 2019

Making a change from the brown livery of the CrossCountry units, and the awful dark green GWR colour scheme, 175115 brings a touch of brightness to the scene at Up Hatherley on 13 May 2019, as it nears journey's end with the 2G54 09:12 Cardiff Central to Cheltenham Spa Transport for Wales service. The unit is completely devoid of any branding, and still carries the obsolete Arriva Trains Wales livery. The abundant hawthorn blossom in the foreground also brightens up the otherwise monotone green scene.
